The Metropolitan Opera’s production of Philip Glass’s contemporary opera "Akhnaten" airs at the Clark Art Institute in the latest presentation of The Met: Live in HD. Now in its 14th season, the award-winning series of live high-definition cinema simulcasts features the full live performance along with backstage interviews and commentary. "Akhnaten" explores psychology, politics, and mysticism through an imagining of the life of the historical figure for whom the opera is named—the ancient Egyptian pharaoh and first founder of a monotheistic religion. Tickets for each performance are $25; call 413-458-0524.
